Our desire is for all conference participants to leave this event empowered with the necessary tools and resources to foster resilience in their families, workplaces, and communities.  Want to be a presenter?

Why Attend This Trauma-Informed Care Conference?

The documentary Paper Tigers sparked renewed interest in the effects of chronic, overwhelming stress and trauma on children’s development. Knowledge about ACEs continues to be shared throughout the country. Yet parents, educators, clinicians, mental health workers and law enforcement alike still struggle to implement this knowledge in a concrete and tangible way.  This year’s conference will provide concrete strategies for implementation, including a day-long Trauma-Informed Certification track, in both English and Spanish, and General conference sessions which include six sessions specifically focused on community implementation examples.
